It's a little later than promised, but here it is. This is my friend and neighbor, Wendi. It was painted from a photo I took at our crawfish boil this past spring. It was one of those "I have to paint this" photos! If you go to the Gallery and click on the thumbnail image there to enlarge it, you can see the shade canopies from the crawfish boil reflected in her sunglasses.
Check back in a few days...I will have a new painting up soon called Through Wendi's Eyes.
Hmmm...it turns out I wasn't finished. A little cropping, a little background work, dirtied up his tennis shoes (he is, after all, a little boy) and strengthened the shadows. I may still do a little more work on it. Many thanks to my artist friends for all their suggestions. I may rename it Tree Monkey. Let me know what you think.
